I was so excited to get my hands on a new HP Pagewide for the first time in a while this spring. I was able to put my hands on this machine, plug it in, and finally start using it, and I can’t wait to get back in the field with it.
The HP PAGEWIDE is a tablet computer designed to run HP’s software platform. Like the HP ProBook X1 Extreme, their tablet computers are designed to provide a full Windows experience to users that need to run the HP’s software, including HP’s Office suite, Windows Live, and a ton of other software. With the HP ProBook X1 Extreme, you get the full speed of Windows XP, the latest version of Windows Vista, and all of the new features of Windows 7.
HPs software for tablets is essentially an extension to the company’s flagship Windows PC, the ProBook X1. It shares the same design and operating system. The tablet computers run Windows XP Pro and XP Home, which are both updated versions of the most recent versions of Windows, running the same Windows 7. The new HP ProBook X1 Extreme is the only model to run Windows 7 – and it can’t be beat, it’s the best Windows 7 tablet PC available.
The HP ProBook X1 Extreme is the only Windows 7-capable tablet PC to run the newest version of Windows, with features like touch UI, multi-tasking and high-res touch screen. The tablet is a great little machine that is easy to use and has a lot of the same functions as the ProBook X1. A tablet PC is a great and convenient way to get Windows 7 on your lap.
It’s worth noting that HP really isn’t selling a “pro” model anymore. The HP ProBook X1 Extreme is the same machine that you can buy today as the “pro” model. The ProBook X1 is essentially the same machine, but only has the newest version of Windows 7, rather than the older Windows 7.
It is one thing to be able to get Windows 7 on a device. It is one thing to be able to run Windows 7 on the device. It is another thing to be able to take advantage of the new ProBook features. I still think that I can get all the same things on a tablet as I can with a laptop, but I’ve found that having a tablet rather than a laptop is better for me.
I don’t know the exact reason for this, but it seems that the ProBook X1 has a faster processor, more memory, and much faster graphics than the ProBook X1. So what the heck do you need a faster processor than the ProBook X1 for? And why would you want to run Windows 7 on it? I think I’ll stick with my netbooks until I can finally get one with a real SSD.
While the ProBook X1 is good for a few things (the speed, the processor), I would not consider it a replacement for a laptop. I think the laptop model that best suits me is the HP Spectre x360. It has a faster processor, a faster display, and a faster SSD. The only reason I would not take a laptop with me everywhere is if I have to plug in a keyboard and mouse.
The fact that Windows 7 is still so new, and only recently been bundled with laptops, has to do with the fact that HP has been pretty tight-lipped about its plans for Windows 7. I don’t think anyone knows what it’s going to be like. It’s hard to say, since HP hasn’t revealed anything about it. The HP Spectre x360 is the only model I’ve seen with Windows 7 preinstalled.
A lot of people are wondering, will the HP Spectre x360 have a touchscreen. This is a possibility, but only if Windows 7 is actually released with a touchscreen. Microsoft did try out a touchscreen configuration in Windows 8, but it’s not quite there yet. The next version of Windows will most likely include a touchscreen on the desktop.
